Won't You Trade Your Ashes for Jesu
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Won’t You Trade Your Ashes

for Jesus’ Love?


You may be in a hopeless and hard situation.

This probably happened with no explanation.


Perhaps all of this is more than you can bear.

Often, you may wonder if anyone really cares.


There may have been a lot of things you tried.

Not counting the many nights that you cried.


May I encourage you that when all seems lost…

Can you somehow, get your eyes on the cross?


The cross of Christ represents Jesus and his glory.

His love for you is a never ending story!


A story of love and a life-changing redemption!

Jesus offers his love and makes no exemption!


Won’t you come and accept all HE has for you!

There’s so much that Christ wants to do!


He wants to give an abundant life

 beyond measure!

He wants to change you according

 to his pleasure!


He’s the same right now,

as he was the day before!

He wants to bring you life eternal

 and much more!


Trading your life of ashes for his

love is a good choice!

Jesus will bring happiness

and give a reason to rejoice!


Thank you Jesus, for all

you want to do!

Help us all to lean on

and put our trust IN YOU!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
